Abstract

The traditional client/server architecture for web service delivery fails to naturally scale. This results in growing costs to the service provider for powerful hardware or extensive use of Content Distribution Networks. A P2P overlay network provides inherent scalability with multiple benefits to both clients and servers. In this paper, we provide analysis, design and prototype implementation of Cooperative Web Cache, which allows us to scale web service delivery and cope with demand spikes by employing clients in content replication. To demonstrate performance capabilities, we provide a prototype emulation for both client and server.
